Physician Peter E. Richmond was born in 1846 in New York. He graduated from McGill University in Montreal in 1873 and moved here in 1874. He visited his patients on horseback, gave free medical care to the poor, and was considered the "pioneer physician" of Isabella County. He was Supreme Medical Director of the Gold Reserve Life Association, a local insurance organization. In 18777 he married Anna Grey. In 1904, he platted the northeast section of the city with John Kinney.
 
 
Peter and Anna Richmond House
Physician Peter E. Richmond purchased this land in 1974 from Langdon and Pamelia Bentley. In 1893 John T. Hidey built this balloon-framed, Queen Anne style home for Richmond, his wife, Anna, and their daughter, Imogene. Hidey also built the Indian Industrial Boarding School and other local homes. Richmond lived in this house until his death in 1910. Anna sold the house in 11915 for $4,700 to R.T. Kane, who later became Mount Pleasant's mayor.
